They have a very similar bounce when dropped and the same feel to the touch as the Hi-Temps. One thing I like better is that they are 450mm in diameter rather than the slightly smaller 445mm Hi-Temps. Yes, that’s a tiny difference but it’s noticeable to me (although possibly only because I’m aware of it). In any case, I like that it matches my other bumpers and I don’t give a 2nd thought to which plate I’m grabbing when adding weight.
I have not dropped the bar with just the 10 or 15 lbs plates and have no intention of doing so as I have little doubt it won’t be long before they would warp or bend. The OFW 10s and 15s are definitely sturdier in that respect although I don’t drop them either.
The construction and materials look as solid as any bumpers I’ve used so I have high expectations for these to last a very long time. The 3 year warranty is also impressive.
Two thumbs up.
